I've tried different settings and several CF cards, and I can't reproduce the issue it seems...

I'm not sure if it's related directly to a bug in ML or in a raw video module. After recording some raw video, the camera says "busy". I've searched the topic, there seemed to be at least one person who experienced this issue, though noone answered. I'm running the latest nightly build "magiclantern-Nightly.2015Jun23.5D3113"

I don't know of any way to remove the camera bootflag from the 6d (same as 5d3 I guess) - as for the card simply format the card to remove the card bootflag (or disable it with eos utility), remove ml files, done. I admit that's rather "deactivate" than "uninstall" and the camera will still have the 1s delay on boot.

I think there's a way to remove the bootflag, by downgrading firmware, the procedure is described here

I'm not sure it's the right place to ask, but still I'll give it a try. Since we're limited in raw vide resolution, what would be the most apropriate encoder setting to achieve the best results with h264? I've searched the forums, but so far I've seen stuff related to 600D, and I think those settings aren't relevant to the current build. I someone has experience with this, maybe they could share the info.

Yes, this is what happens - ML disables some power saving, and some feature like peaking are rather cpu intensive.

I used the 6d w/o ML only for one day, so I cannot say how high the battery drain would be otherwise because "browsing the menus" turns the lcd on which eats a lot of power, so browsing though pictures or the Canon menu might nearly have the same effect.

Yep, I figured about peaking and zebras would eat a lot of resources and be CPU intensive, turned that off. Ultimately what bothers me is not power consumption but the fact that the camera gets warm to hot, and I didn't have that even when shooting a full time wedding. I didn't expect it, or maybe it's just my camera.

I want to update ML on my card to the November update but am wary about proceeding without asking this basic question:
I read that an ML update simply involves copy/pasting the files from the November update onto the card.
But some of the folder names are different - eg some with capital letters, some not (eg cropmks versus CROPMKS). Aren`t these folders simply going to sit alongside each other on the card?
And the folder names are not all the same:

In the update: cropmks, data, doc, fonts, logs, modules, scripts, settings
On the card now: CROPMKS, DCIM, DOC, MISC

This doesn`t seem like a clean copy/paste/replace to me. I`d be grateful to know whether I am ok to go ahead and do this without causing myself problems.

Thanks. I can`t wait to point my camera at the sun with dual iso and see what I get!

I installed ML yesterday for the first time, as described in the install guide thread, to update i just replaced the folders on my SD card with the new ones - all worked fine.

I'm not sure it's relevant to this thread, but using LV with ML seems to heat up the camera pretty fast (I was playing with it browsing the menus and stuff, temp got to 55C in like 5-10 minuts) also battery goes down fast. Is it ok with ML?

Is it possible to remove the bootflag while on 1.1.3?

That thing bothers me too. I didn't find any info on 6D

EDIT, the search button does miracles...

How fast is your SD Card? Could be a contributing factor. Did you have trouble before installing ML? Might be worth reverting ML settings back to default from inside the ML menu just to make sure you aren't accidentally smashing out some mad high bit-rates.

Try booting the camera while holding the SET button to bypass ML on boot (will make the camera boot up one time without ML).

As suggested - you can always just format your card from a computer and it wont run ML.

If you really need to clear ML completely then follow these steps (assuming you are on firmware 1.1.3):

1: Format a card (in your computer).

2: Copy the 1.1.2 Firmware from the zip in the guide on page one to the SD Card.

3: Pop the SD Card back in the camera and run firmware "updater" 1.1.2 to downgrade the firmware.

4: Power off camera and put SD Card back in computer.

5: Delete Firmware 1.1.2 from the Card.

6: Run EOScard from the zip in step one of the guide on page 1 of this thread.

7: Delete (don't format) the files on the card.

8: Copy the contents of the folder "Files to run Magic Lantern on 6D Firmware 1.1.2" from the zip in step one of the guide, onto the SD Card.

9: Switch the camera to "M" (MANUAL) shooting mode, put the SD Card back in the camera and power it on.

10: Run the firmware updater. What this will now do is run the Developer FIR that you originally used to set the bootflag to begin with and eventually take you to a screen which will prompt you to switch shooting mode to remove the bootflag. So basically, when you see this, turn the dial to "Av" mode. This will then do it's thing and say something like "Bootflag removed" and also ask you to power down the camera so go ahead and do that.

11: Now you can pop the SD Card back in your computer and format it and clear all the ML files off and also you might want to clear all custom settings within the Canon menu to be sure that it's all nice and squeaky clean again. Oh and feel free to re-update your firmware if you want.

If you want ML back then simply follow the guide again on page one of this thread.
Any problems let me know. Cheers  8)

Can ML for 6D in the current state be considered stable for reliable usage? I know a lot of work has been done, and developers constantly improve stuff. I'm not planning to shoot raw, but I'm interested in features like zebra and focus peaking for video. I'm planning to shoot an event soon, so have to be sure about my camera.

What is the highest resolution and bit rate what can I set in safe for making raw videos?

you might want to take a look at this chart -

You need a card that is able to write data @45Mb (a Sandisk extreme is recommended) - 1592*896 is reported to be continuous  @24p

Hello again!
So, I bought an 4 GB card and I can "install" ML on my 6D! :)
But... :(
There is something problem I think... At button Q - ML menubar is gone - it's OK. But if I set raw video the 6D go crazy. ML send lot of messages and this box not gone. It's cover half of screen and infos are flashing and I can make only 1-2 second long raw videos.
The red card reading light is flashing constantly too. is it normal?

I think your card is not that good (if you've used that 4GB) to support raw recording. You'll need to use a fast SD card.
The reason to use a 4GB card was for the sole purpose of installing ML on your camera, you'll need to prepare another card with all the files specified.
